Syringe cleanup fights injury and infection

My friends at People Advocating Recovery Northern KY are sponsoring their first volunteer-led neighborhood syringe cleanup.

Here's their message.

People Advocating Recovery in Northern Kentucky (NKY PAR) will be organizing the first of many syringe cleanup efforts beginning in Covington on Sunday 5/4/14, from 1-3pm. Our goal is to safely remove, map, and dispose of the infected needles that are littering our streets, playgrounds, and neighborhoods.

We will meet outside of the main entrance to the Kenton County Building at 303 Court Ave., and will branch out into the community from there. We are working with limited resources and greatly appreciate any support from our partnering organizations, community leaders, and neighbors.

Needed items of interest:

If you or your agency is able and willing to participate by donating time, safety training resources, supplies, or support of any kind, please feel free to contact me personally, or join us this Sunday.

Thank you for your time and consideration,

Jason Merrick
